Really nice quality ice cream, and also a super good price - you get big scoops as well. I had three scoops which was way too much for me to eat, but it was so good:)

We had a nice dessert here, a black chocolate ice cream with raspberries. It's flavour is really something else. It was crowded on the terrace, so we took a takeaway and sat by the river to eat it. A really nice experience and great taste.

Excellent dessert place in Ljubljana! Has very good variety of ice creams/gellatos and desserts as in cakes and pastries. They have an extensive variety in hot chocolate too. A must visit if you like desserts. The hazelnut cake is super.

Here you have everything you need to relax in the center of Ljubljana and enjoy the view of the river and listening of the sound coming from the most famous market in Ljubljana - Prešernov trg. They have the best ice cream in town, with a wide range of cakes and drinks. You will not be disappointed.

We sat outside under the sun in the morning, by the river, and it was perfect. The place is nice, the juice i ordered is great and not too expensive. Ppl loves cacao so it's packed but we eventually enjoyed ourselves, chilling.

We visited twice in February. The ginger hot chocolate, nutella hot chocolate, hot chocolate smoothie and marshmallow hot chocolate are all amazing.

was in Ljubljana for four days and came across this place right on the river in the heart of Ljubljana. The ice cream is truly delicious - my favourites are muffin and also the vanilla. Coffee is also superb and prices are very reasonable. Missing it already!! Staff also very friendly and helpful and great setting.
